15 Fun & Free Things to Do in San Francisco

On a budget but traveling to the City by the Bay? Check out these 15 free things to do in San Francisco!

Mark Twain once said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” The first time I arrived in San Francisco, traveling up from L.A., it was August. The first thing I did was buy a sweatshirt because it was cold! Nevertheless, I immediately fell in love.  There was something about the air and the vibe that made me feel relaxed and yet energized at the same time.  San Francisco just made me feel good! 

Despite those immediate good vibes, I have to admit that San Francisco is pretty pricey. The cost of living in San Francisco is 62.6% higher than the cost of living in the rest of the U.S. The median cost to rent a 1bedroom apartment is a whopping $3108/month.  Eating out, even at a mid-priced restaurant, can cost about double the U.S. average. 

So if you’re on a budget you might be thinking – maybe San Francisco shouldn’t be on my travel list. NONSENSE!
